O&M works with Habermann brand electrical equipment for reservoir dredging, with an extraction capacity of:

This is an efficient system that is entirely environmentally friendly, as its energy source is electrical rather than diesel or gasoline. This avoids spills in the dredging zones which are, in some cases, drinking water supply sources for people or crops.
